The Congress on Monday targeted the BJP for nominating "non-Kannadiga" Rajeev Chandrasekhar for the Rajya Sabha polls, accusing it of "consistently acting against Karnataka's interests".

"Congress has fielded two candidates for Gujarat and are supporting an independent candidate who is wishing to fight against the BJP". The Congress, on the other hand, has 77 MLAs, and the support of four independents and one MLA of Bharatiya Tribal Party.

On Monday, a high drama played out for five hours outside the office of Returning Officer A B Karova with rumours that Congress leader Rajeev Shukla will file nominations instead of former Union minister Naran Rathwa.

He ended his over-a-decade-long association with the party in September a year ago, formed the Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksh, and allied with the BJP-led NDA.

Congress also seems to be leaving nothing to chance after it faced one of the toughest Rajya Sabha elections in August previous year when senior leader Ahmed Patel won by a narrow margin.

Not wanting to take any chances, the Congress has also fielded party leader P. K. Valera as an independent candidate, as a backup arrangement.

From Karnataka, the Congress has nominated L Hanumanthaiah, Syed Naseer Hussain and GC Chandrasekhar.

Freezing failure at SF fertility clinic; eggs may be damaged
Too little liquid nitrogen causes the temperature to rise, with a risk of damage to the tissue housed in vials called cryolocks. According to the Pacific Fertility website, egg-freezing costs $8,345 for the first round and $6,995 for each subsequent round.

"Today's episode has brought to the fore tremendous infighting in the Congress camp".

The poll outcome, if elections need to be held, will be announced on March 23.

BJP has also made a decision to field Rajeev Chandrasekhar as party nominee from Karnataka while U Sameer will be saffron party candidate from Jharkhand.

Abhishek Manu Singhvi is the party's candidate from West Bengal and he will win as the Trinamool Congress has chose to support him.

Abhishek Manu Singhvi, who is also representing Karti Chidambaram, son of former finance minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media case, will contest from West Bengal where the Trinamool Congress has already announced its support for his candidature. The Congress on Sunday night declared Marathi editor Kumar Ketkar (72) as its candidate from Maharashtra.

In the 224-member assembly, each candidate will require 44 votes to win a Rajya Sabha seat.
